  1. I always remember following Arsenal when I was at junior school in the early 70's (charlie george era). I was keen on football but we didn't have any spare money and going to live games was out of my dad's spending power with 4 kids to keep. My uncle was a gashead and I went to a few games at Eastville with them (they paid) so it almost ended in tragedy. My memory is a bit vague but I think it was '74 they took me to AG. There was a league game just before we played Liverpool in the League cup. A stub from that game gave priority for the Cup game and my glory-hunting uncle wanted to see Liverpool live. Can't remember who it was... Have to say I don't remember much about that game - would've been 13. Next season was promotion and by then I'd seriously got interested but didn't go to any games. My first live game that I remember properly was with my Dad -the 1-0 away to Arsenal. Our coach got bricked on the way out of Highbury. From that day on I was hooked. So - another glory hunter.
  2. Maybe Villa going up will trigger one of the add-ons in the Kodjia deal. If so I want them to go up as it benefits us. If not I don't give a flying **** which team goes up. There are valid reasons to dislike all of them.
  3. According to Forbes SL is worth $2.6 which is nearer £2bn. Just another guesstimate. https://www.forbes.com/profile/stephen-lansdown/
  4. Will the Champions League final be on BT Sport only or is it one of those that has to be on free tv? I should be able to remember from last season but am clearly getting senile....
  5. From the bit I heard of SL on the radio pre-match he seemed to say there was no intention to change the strategy. You can interpret that different ways but it didn't sound like they are about to start a new phase, or make some kind of significant splurge on new players. I'm sure people will say it is better to do it all in secrecy. I just don't get the impression that SL plays games like that though.
  6. That'd how I started off. 10gb sounds plenty but if you torrent a lot it soon runs out. I just wanted the convenience and for a year it's worth it imho.
  7. Maybe the EFL read OTIB and saw my post? Is it just me btw who can't insert smileys any more. If I click on the smiley icon on my phone it just locks up. Smileys eventually appear but can't select one or get any further from there. Only option is closing the window and starting again.
  8. Rather than make Brentford play them after Sunday, why not award the points to Brentford. It's a meaningless match and Bolton have been unable to field a side before the end of the season. Seems unfair to the Brentford fans to make them play next week.
  9. Remind me. How much did Norwich spend on 'Championship Player of the Season' Pukki? Oh yes - free transfer. It's more about having good scouts and having a style of play plus knowing what players will work in that style imo. Not sure we could spot a Pukki and I don't know what LJ's plan is and I don't think he does either. I suspect that's partly why half the signings don't work out. He signs loads of wingers then plays with wing backs being just one example.
  10. My request is to score three goals in the first 18 minutes. Might just explain a good atmosphere more than the music played or whether an extra pint is consumed before taking your seat.
  11. If only it was live on sky. We seem to turn up more often than not when the spotlight is on at AG.
  12. All this talk of Pack being tired baffles me. It's Monday. He doesn't play again now until Saturday. If a professional sportsman in his prime can't play two games in 5 days there is something seriously wrong.
  13. SL is clearly of the opinion that clubs should stay within the FFP rules. The extent to which we can spend this summer will presumably depend on how much room there is within the FFP limits. While we sold big last summer I'm not clear whether the full amount from those sales are accounted in that year. Given that payments are usually in instalments, do they appear in our accounts as and when the payments are made? I guess if the full amounts are counted in the year we sold there should be scope to spend a reasonable chunk in the summer.
  14. Try talking to a Fulham fan WW - that might give you some perspective. All clubs have good and bad signings. For the amount spent we have done well to be pushing for the play offs. Fulham spent over £100m in the summer and arguably made their team worse.
